Stephens Voted OVC Baseball Player of the Week

MSU Athletics

Morehead State junior third baseman Alex Stephens was honored as the College Sports Madness Ohio Valley Conference Baseball Player of the Week on Feb. 23.

A native of Wheeling, W. Va., Stephens hit .429 with two doubles, a triple, a home run and five RBI during a three-game sweep at North Carolina Central on opening weekend. Stephens hit for the cycle (single, double, triple, home run) in his only four at-bats in Saturday's 24-4 victory and drove in four runs while scoring three times.

He opened the season by going 2-for-5 with a double in Friday's 4-2 triumph.

Last season, Stephens was named MVP of the OVC Tournament after hitting .500 and leading the Eagles to their first championship since 1993. He finished the 2015 season with a .331 batting average and four homers in 32 games.

Stephens transferred to MSU from Pensacola (Fla.) State College after taking a redshirt season at West Virginia in 2013.

Morehead State faces No. 8 North Carolina State today.
